Shine Your Light

For more than 80 years, East Tennessee Children's Hospital has touched the lives of millions of children in Tennessee, Virginia, Kentucky and beyond. From chronic illnesses to routine exams, we treat every visit as an opportunity to shine our light.

Hospital visits can be stressful for children. Whether they've planned to be at our door or not, families often feel anxious when faced with illness. We've spent years practicing family-centered medicine - meaning we don't just treat the patient, we treat the whole family. Children heal faster when their parents and siblings are involved.

This season, we invite you to shine your light on the families we serve and to let them know they aren’t alone.

In December, you will notice some local businesses and attractions lighting up blue for East Tennessee Children’s Hospital. Our goal is to raise awareness for our patient families. We hope that wherever you see the blue lights, you're reminded that right now hundreds of children could use your support as they receive life-saving surgeries and treatments.

Children are special, and they deserve specialized care. We could not provide our expert services without the support and generosity of donors in our community. We are asking you, our neighbors, to help us raise critical funds to support the programs and services that make an impact on our community and beyond.
